Giants-Bucs Inactives: Uani 'Unga won't play for Giants

Linebacker Uani 'Unga, dealing with a neck injury, will be inactive Sunday for the New York Giants when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With Jon Beason having been placed on IR Saturday and J.T. Thomas (ankle) also out, the Giants will be short-handed at linebacker.

Veteran Jasper Brinkley will start at middle linebacker, with James Morris as his backup. Morris was just added to the roster from the practice squad before last week's game. Brinkley played his first significant snaps of the season last week.

The only healthy scratch for the Giants will be rookie offensive lineman Bobby Hart.

The Buccaneers are also short-handed. They will be without wide receiver Vincent Jackson and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
